At age thirteen I discovered my love for music and wrote my first two songs, “Hair” and “Beauty Queen.” Being a girly-girl, I wrote happy pop songs about pretty things but eventually dove into exploring different styles of music. I even got a karaoke machine to practice singing. Later I discovered one of my all time favorite bands, Garbage. Shirley Manson was a voice and force to be reckoned with and I wanted to be like her. I was sixteen with a dream of music and fame.
It wasn’t until 2007 that I got into a studio to learn about recording and production. I worked with a guy named Milton in the Bronx, NY. He taught me almost everything I know. At our first session he had me write and arrange a song in 30 minutes. We recorded it the same night. He couldn't believe I had never recorded before. Since then I have worked with many different producers, which was a great way to get different input to shape my unique style.
My drive to make music, led to the completion of my first EP, Genesis, which debuted in September ‘08. I wrote and co-produced all of the songs and even featured my Japanese language skills in a track called "Ride it (Sore ni Notte)." Genesis spawned four singles and three music videos. My music and videos have been featured on various Radio, internet and television outlets including: Blogtalk Radio, UCLA Radio, KTU.com, Z100.com, McDonalds Time Sq, Toronto TV and WPIX morning news.
Besides Garbage, I am heavily influenced by: Gwen Stefani, Madonna, Pink, Cyndi Lauper, Blondie, The Sounds, and Surferosa. My style of music is very unique due to my multi-faceted taste. I infuse Pop/Rock with Electronica. I'm a genre bender and that is what sets me apart from other artists. Demi is not a cookie cutter pop singer, rather, an ingenuitive artist that sees the need for something new and interesting.
I released my second EP, “Femme Fatale,” in late 2010. My video for my second single, “Shadow Dancer,” is one of the 1st 3D Music Videos. I have performed at venues such as: NJ Bears Stadium, Trash Bar, Don Hills, Poisson Rouge and the NYC Marathon. Besides my music, I keep busy by writing for other artists, licensing, dancing, acting and modeling. I am constantly evolving and discovering the world through music and want to share the experience.
